Did anyone else catch this show last night? It's supposed to be the "new 'Buffy'" - only without the supernatural element. Confused

Here's the synopsis of the show (general background, no specific spoilers) courtesy TV Tome:

quote:
VERONICA MARS is set in the wealthy, seaside community of Neptune, where the rich and powerful make the rules, own the town and the high school, and desperately try to keep their dirty little secrets just that... secret. Unfortunately for them, there's Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) a smart, fearless 17-year-old, apprentice private investigator dedicated to solving the town's toughest mysteries.

During the day, Veronica must still negotiate high school like any average teenage girl. Along with fellow outcast, sophomore Wallace Fennel (Percy Daggs III), she bravely maneuvers her classes, wary of former in-crowd friends, like ex-boyfriend Duncan Kane (Teddy Dunn) and his best friend Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring), and edgy outsiders, like Weevil (Francis Capra) and his P.C.H. Bike Club boys.

At night, Veronica looks after her former-Sheriff father Keith Mars (Enrico Colantoni) and helps with his struggling, new private investigator business. By sneaking through back alleys and scoping out no-tell motels with a telescopic-lens camera and her math book, Veronica attempts to uncover the California beach town's darkest secrets, including who killed her best friend and Duncan's sister, Lilly, and created a scandal that cost her father his job, his home and wife.

Pushed to the edge of this multicultural, venomous little Peyton Place, Veronica Mars relentlessly continues to search for evidence that will clear her father's name and get her back into the "in-crowd," but what she finds may tear the town of Neptune apart at the seams.


Anyways, it wasn't too bad, but I reserve judgment until I've seen a few more episodes.

If you missed it, it's on again on Friday night at 9 pm ET on UPN. Check your local listings, etc., etc.

Thank goodness! I thought I was the only one watching this show!

Yes... beloved Wonderfalls. Many a tear has been shed for that show. So good. Too good for Fox.

Did anyone else watch this season? If not, buy the DVDs (should be out in the Fall)! You will NOT be disappointed!

And regarding the season finale... totally didn't see that one coming! Clearly, Veronica Mars is smarter than me.

I yelled at the tv screen.

I screamed warnings of impending doom such as "ahh, look out!" "no, Veronica, don't do it!".

I was on the edge of my seat...well, bed technically.
I gave myself a little bitty asthma attack.

Now THAT'S a good season finale!

That finale rocked. Smile

And this show has so gotten under my skin. I didn't like it at first 'cause I couldn't get into Kristin Bell... but that girl grew on me. And these last few eps, I've been totally into it. I especially like Logan/Veronica, hehe.

But really, couldn't have been a better finale! Cool to know others watch it here. Smile

Found out something interesting the other day. My GF was good friends with Rob Thomas all through college. She knew he'd briefly written for Dawson's Creek, but had no idea he'd gone on to be all Hollywood with his own show. I'll see if she has any old pics we can scan and post just for the hell of it.

It's repeating here tonight at 9pm.


But you're my source. When I reach down deep inside myself and do things I'm not capable of, it's because of you. Don't you know that by now?

So I got the first season on DVD and I'm more and more addicted with each episode. I love the whole Nancy Drew feel to it. I still haven't seen hardly any of season 2. In fact I think the only episode that I've seen is the one with Lucy.

I heart this show.

"Monkey? As in..."

"Touch my. Yeah"

And oh how I loved the Canada scene. Awesomeness.
